We are proud to support Focus on the Global of South, a group that challenges neoliberalism, militarism, and corporate-driven globalization while strengthening just and equitable alternatives. They are consistently doing groundbreaking work bringing together progressive social forces, especially in South East Asia.
Recently, Focus published a report entitled “Beautiful Clothes, Ugly Realities,” which highlights the conditions of the garment industry in Cambodia. In one related protest, Cambodian garment workers confidently took to the catwalk carrying giant US$100 notes, which they then tore up. They placed the torn strips into different boxes labelled “food,” “water,” “electricity,” “utility,” “transport” and “health” to make the point they are not paid enough to survive.
